noise/sound/call scary for warblers

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if... is there a sound, bird call, or noise that scares the warblers?

eg. the opposite of a playback attracting them

Some folks use Chickadee scolds mixed with a Screech Owl and that has been known to bring in some warblers (whenever there are Chickadees scolding at something, for some reason other birds come in to check it out). I presume the Screech Owl on it's own would scare warblers but you would be hard pressed to see them flush. 

That said, caution should still be used. With scold calls and such it is very much still a stressor for the birds, and while I think a better option than playing back songs/calls in Spring, the research is still out as to how disruptive it can be and I'd suggest being as least disruptive as possible.
